Merciful Teachings from Never-Resting Bodhisattva
A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Proceed forward with one step at a time. In the early stages of establishment, aim not for the grandiose visions, but the details.
“Complete with the easy tasks when doing something difficult, complete with the details when doing something grand.” Do you understand this principle? A sage never seeks for greatness; yet greatness is inevitable.
Stabilize the foundation starting from the core expanding outwards, from the bottom expanding upwards, like a pyramid. Understand? Cultivate diligently. There may be conflicts, but learn from one another. Then, you can most definitely “shave an iron rod into a needle”, that is, achieving the impossible. Understand?
Every Tao pioneer on the front line should perform in the best interests of the Tao Center. Those temples with thriving propagation should assist other temples. Temples with slow and steady growth should have the spirit of “recognizing the achievements of others’ as if their own.” Lead the Chong-De family into greatness, understand?
